Memorial Sloan-Kettering Shares Theory, Programs

In October, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City hosted two events for its nursing staff.

During the first program, called “Caring at Its Best: The Art & Science of Nursing,” Marie Manthey, MNA, FAAN, FRCN; Jean Watson, RN, PhD, AHN-BC, FAAN; and Kristen M. Swanson, RN, PhD, FAAN, discussed the Swanson Caring Theory. The theory names and defines five characteristics of caring: maintaining belief, knowing, being with, doing for, and enabling.
